Moura came off the bench for Tottenham and scored almost instantly against City yesterday, as Mauricio Pochettino’s men picked up a 2-2 draw.
The Brazilian looked Tottenham’s most dangerous attacking player during his time on the pitch, with his dribbling ability really coming to the fore.
But Redknapp feels that Moura doesn’t make an impact on Tottenham’s matches anywhere near as often as he should do.
“It’s an interesting one with Moura because he came on and changed the game. You think why is he not starting him,” Redknapp said.
“I watched him at White Hart Lane last week though and he was really ineffective. There are times when you watch him and you see he has so much pace and ability, but then he doesn’t affect other games. I get frustrated with him because he’s got so much ability.”
Moura has become a huge weapon for Tottenham, but he has not been able to nail down his place in their starting line-up.
Pochettino seems to have some doubts over making him a permanent starter at Tottenham.
Despite his goal, there is no guarantees that Moura will be picked for Tottenham’s next game either.
Spurs are set to take on Newcastle United in their next outing, but Heung Min Son’s return from suspension means that competition for places up-front has just got even fiercer at White Hart Lane.
